Are there any organic or non-GMO soy waxes available?

Unfortunately no. Only a very small percentage of the total US production of soy wax is organic. About 98% of the soybean harvest has been either genetically modified (GMO) or non-GMO mixed in with GMO soybeans. 

A designation of "Organic"is also not possible for any soy wax or any wax made from a liquid vegetable oil that is turned into a solid. In order for liquid soybean oil to transform into a solid wax, the oil must undergo a chemical change. Due to this chemical change the wax cannot meet an "Organic" Certification.
